Claire’s Life: Balmain’s Madison Avenue Store Event with Olivier Rousteing + Celebrating Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis

I LOVE Balmain, and I LOVE Olivier Rousteing, so despite being TIRED from the Strength of a Woman Fest in Atlanta, then appearing on E! Daily Pop in LA, I rallied and went to a Balmain Madison Avenue Store Event: Since Marlo Hampton was kind enough to shout me out on Real Housewives, I returned the love by patronizing her showroom, Le Archive, wear I plucked a Balmain x Barbie look for the night. Olivier said I looked fabulous–and I…

Claire’s Life #NYFW Highlights: Sergio Hudson, Laquan Smith, Gucci x Azede and More!
